It just doesn’t seem fair. We watch our kids (or hear of kids that we know) get the whole summer off then go off to summer camp. Even college students on summer break have opportunities for adventurous excursions in the great outdoors.
And don’t get me started on all the summer writing camps for those under the age of adulting. Young writers can easily find a camp that fits their creativity needs, either at remote parts of the country or right down the street in their hometown.
Don’t worry. I found a loophole—and we adults now can also go to writing camp this summer!

Spring is finally here! After a harsh winter filled with dark days, bitter winds and more snow than I prefer, I welcome chirping birds, blooming flowers and earlier sunrises.
Spring is a time for new beginnings. There’s no better time to start developing new writing habits that get you to write more like this spring.

We did it! We all survived National Novel Writing Month: 2017 Edition! Whether or not we reached (or surpassed) 50K words for our novel, the most important thing that came out of this month is that we wrote more words than we probably have all year.
Or is it just me?
Now that it’s December, I wanted to reflect just one more time on this year’s NaNoWriMo experience before I shift my blog posts back to advice and random thoughts on
, writing , grammar , editing and blogging . social media branding
We’re down to the final seven days of the NaNoWriMo writing challenge! The second half for me is always the hardest because the story becomes more intense and awkward at the same time.
Oh, and did I mention it’s Thanksgiving Week? That throws a plot twist into the writing challenge for me every single year.
So, did I reach my target daily word count goals for National Novel Writing Month? Keep reading.
